Highlight Story

New Zealand grandmother Karen Davy sang for 48 hours to set a new Guinness World Record and raise money for children's kidney transplants, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

Davy, who prepared for her attempt by humming and making "tonnes of soup," set the mark entertaining travellers at Auckland Airport's international departure lounge, finishing on Wednesday afternoon with a sore throat, the New Zealand Herald reported.

She was allowed a five-minute break after every hour and a pause of no more than 30 seconds between songs.
